The Battersea Power Station, designed by Giles Gilbert Scott, is one of the British capital's most conspicuous buildings. The building's quartet of elegant white chimneys is a prominent feature on the banks of the Thames. The power station opened in the early 1930s and remained in operation for 5 decades. Today, the building is refurbished and is the heart of a vibrant commercial and residential precinct. The regenerated Battersea Power Station is host to a unique blend of restaurants, shops and cultural spaces - one of which is Royal Selangor, set to open in September this year. To commemorate the opening, Royal Selangor introduces the understated Battersea capsule collection, comprising lifestyle essentials and décor, that pays homage to the heritage building.
